We tell our students to study for tests all the time, but often we forget to teach them HOW to actually study! That’s where this Study Skills resource comes in. It’s designed to give students practical tips and tricks for studying for tests in ELA or any class! With this resource students will complete fun doodle notes (or sketch notes) and then rotate through fun learning stations.
This Study Skills resource is designed to help students develop skills for studying for tests. First, students will complete highly engaging Doodle Notes about 3 Easy Ways to Study for Tests. Then, students will practice the study skills at 5 fun Learning Stations. They’ll practice giving their notes a refresh, developing acronyms, creating memorable rhymes, writing their own quizzes, and making a study skills bookmark filled with tips and tricks for preparing for exams. After designing doodle notes and practicing the studying techniques, students will have skills to help them study for their next test in ELA or any class!
